We are proud to offer a Direct Primary Care
What is it? Direct Primary care is essentially a subscription/membership based medical model that leaves out the hassle and headache of traditional medical insurance. This allows us to offer flexible visit schedules, convenient monthly inexpensive payments or you can have the ability to pay at time of service. The choice is yours.
Are you tired of the same fast-paced approach most of the healthcare system embraces?
You're not alone. Unfortunately, insurance dictates how most healthcare practitioners treat their patients. Studies show that the average time most patients spend with their doctor is 15 minutes. So many are fed up with the way our healthcare is operated. We're changing that at Innate.
How is what we do different or better than conventional model today?
Let's take a look. The average deductible for a person who receives an individual plan through their work health insurance pays a deductible anywhere from $1,300 to $2,000 or more. For a family plan an average of $5,000 goes towards their premiums. Furthermore, the average primary care doctor visit is around $160.
Now let's look at a hypothetical scenario. A 15 minute office visit, that typically ends with a prescription medication order addressing only your symptoms, is $160 paid towards your deductible, plus a $20 copay. Hopefully there's a follow-up so your doctor can check and see how you're doing. This requires another office visit, $160 plus the $20 co-pay. So for the $360 (which was paid towards your deductible) you likely got two 15 minute office visits, a pharmaceutical to cover your symptoms, and no education on some of the biggest factors of your health such as your diet and lifestyle.
Let's use an analogy: You have car insurance for the "health" of your car, but you don't use your car insurance whenever you pay for gas or an oil change do you? The car insurance is used for emergency type situations such as accidents or major repairs. And you'd pay the gas station or oil shop mechanic directly for those day-to-day things. Would you file an insurance claim for changing your car's oil? No. So why file an insurance claim if you have the flu, need care for a chronic condition, or have daily pain? Save your insurance for emergency use and pay a physician for your routine care.
Plus we have access to less expensive pharmaceuticals, supplements, labs, and procedures. So if you're going to spend $1,200 towards your health; why not do it where you have more access to your physician that has more options on how to get you in the most optimal health of your life.
